Poem Commentary

This is the introduction to my second book .. "Beyond The Door" .... Currently a work in progress. This book will contain all of my Poems to date. The First book " Open Windows ~ A different point of view" contains all of my song lyrics and has an underlying story that transitions the reader via a narrative between the different genre's.

Beyond The Door ...

In the inner depths of my minds' own mists ...
Far beyond the realm of reality.
Lies a place where I only know exists,
Thru the passageway ~ 
Of insanity.

It leads me to a twisted world of bliss ...
As I venture across it's crooked floors.
I hear the incessant pounding of fists,
Coming from somewhere far ~
Beyond the door.

I hear cries of anguish and tears of joy ...
Excitement and horrors that multiply.
Where dreams and nightmares completely employ,
Every sight I see ~
Within my minds' eye.

Thru darkness and light and hues crimson red ...
I embark to discover and explore.
Your invited to join me in my head,
Come enter if you dare ~
Beyond the door.

Very good, but leaves me wanting more. I wasn't too crazy about using "Mind's eye" in the poem. It is not really a cliché, but the expression is not your original idea. I'll still give it a 10. Good Write!

This is an exquisite metaphorical piece , in which the poet dares the reader to join him in a place that only the poet knows about. The poet has masterly suata

Nice picture which probably served as an inspiration to writing this poem.

Thanks Blueberry! :) but, no ... This poem was inspired by the poems I am including in my book. I needed something that would capture the story that lies behind the door. I actually searched long and hard for the perfect picture to go with it. :) Thanks again! :) Ken

Thanks Chub! :) It is the intro poem to my second book and I am trying to see what people think - I want to draw the reader in and it seems to be working. Thanks again! :) Ken

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
